GARAGISTIC OEM SUPREME SHORT SHIFTER
Current Lead time: Shifter will ship ~2-3 business days after the order was placed.
Note on stock status:
We currently have all components in stock to make these. However, These are very custom and have tons of configurations. In fact, there are nearly 676 different configurations possible. It's not possible to have every combo pre-made ready to go. Each one gets hand-assembled to each customer's specs. Shipping lead time on shifters is around 1 week from order to shipment. Please do not call/email within 30 seconds of placing the order to check the status. These are worth the wait, we promise!
Due to high demand, in an effort to keep orders going out in as timely a manner as possible we can not take custom requests outside of our pre-configured options. This includes custom anodizing colors and combinations (example: bare assembly with anodized knob), custom shift patterns and emblems, and custom threading options.
Please leave Year and model in the notes on checkout!
We introduced the Solid Chassis Mounted Shifter to the community to provide an affordable race shifter that is simple to install and completely reversible. However, due to the solid mounted design, stiffer polyurethane and solid engine and transmission bushings are required to run those chassis shifters. While the solid shifter is great for the track there is a compromise of added noise and vibration in the car. For this reason, we came up with a short shifter option that does not sacrifice the comfort of OEM rubber bushings: the Garagistic OEM Supreme Short Shifter.
This new Supreme Short Shifter with the same basic concepts in mind: easy to install and completely modular – meaning you can easily switch between different shifter rod heights and different shift knob types (something other short shifters do not have) and even allows the use of different length shifters and shift knobs from our solid mount family. Not to mention you can adjust the throw to your liking. The "longest" setting simulates what the common OEM+ upgrade z3 shifter would feel like. Move it lower and throw becomes shorter and shorter as you move lower pivot down. Our Supreme Short Shifter does not eliminate the OEM shifter carrier unlike our Solid Shifter, so you can use this shifter with OEM rubber engine and transmission bushings! We are constantly making improvements on our parts and the shifter now has a fully threaded center rod and ball for maximum adjustability and compatibility. This is the ultimate short shifter for your street driven BMW or track animal.
Please note: Because this shifter rod is straight (not bent like most BMW OEM shifters), many applications may require a custom length DSSR. If you are unsure what length you will need, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you figure that out! We have over 80 configurations of DSSR's, so it is crucial to include the last 7 of your VIN for us to reference and assist us in determining which DSSR is appropriate for your application.
Better than the OEM+ common Z3 shifter upgrade
The Z3 1.9 models shifter have long been considered the OEM way to upgrade your shifter on your E30, E36, and E46 models. Although its a good way to shorten the throw on your E30 or E36, it not ideal. The inside is filled with rubber and flexes as you shift. So there will always be play in the system by design.
The Supreme Short Shifter is superior to the Z3 shifter upgrade in that our shifter is completely billet aluminum, while the Z3 shifter has rubber on the inside which can degrade over time and develop slop. For only a few bucks over the Z3 shifter, you can have this adjustable throw unit with less play!
Our supreme short shifter is designed to be the tightest shifter on the market compatible with OEM engine and transmission bushings.
To make your shifter feel as tight as possible, we recommend you replace the following:
- BMW Selector Joint
- Front Carrier Shifter Bushings
- B*tch Clip
- Shifter Cup
- Rear Shifter Carrier Bushing
